PerúSAT-1 is a very-high-resolution Earth observation satellite system built for the government and Space Agency of Peru.
PerúSAT-1 is based on Airbus Defence and Space's AstroBus-S platform: the latest generation of high-end satellites designed for a 10-year lifetime.
It observes the Earth through the very-high-resolution optical NAOMI imager, designed and developed by Airbus Defence and Space. This silicon carbide optical instrument provides imagery in high or very-high resolution; in PerúSAT-1’s case 70 centimeters.
Further, the Peruvian Earth observation satellite system also comprises a ground control segment, an image reception and processing center as well as a privileged access to Airbus Defence and Space’s own Earth observation satellite constellation since day one of the contract.
